Abstract: Alfalfa can be successfully established under a corn silage companion crop if appropriate management practices are followed, but plant survival can be suboptimal especially under wet growing conditions. In this presentation, Dr. Grabber will review the results from an initial study that tested the feasibility of breeding alfalfa specifically for improved establishment under corn.
